We share this award with our partners in conservation as this type of work can't succeed without a collaborative effort."                                 

- District Manager, Vicky Dawley 

Each year, the California Association of Resource Conservation Districts selects one of nearly 100 RCDs in the state to receive the esteemed District of the Year award during its annual conference. We were very honored to win the 2018 District of the Year! 
The award is given to an RCD that is relevant, excellent, and visible in its community. We are honored to receive the award and have kept these principles at the forefront of our work:

  • Relevant: The RCDTC remains relevant by addressing multiple resource concerns in our community including water management, wildfire prevention, wildlife habitat restoration, carbon sequestration as well as soil and energy conservation and educational outreach.  
  • Excellent: The RCDTC prides itself on its outstanding financial and operational management as well as project administration. 
  • Visible: The 1,300 individuals reached annually through the RCDTC's outreach programs speaks to our commitment to public education. Staff participation on a variety of county committees keeps the RCDTC connected with local decision makers. Staff also attend or host multiple community events and meetings to connect with various segments of the community.
